about

“Buddy Love Goes Coconuts” is a title I’ve wanted to use for a long time. I always felt it would be a great name for an album, but had no way of knowing how spot on it would be in the end. This album was recorded over a non-consecutive period of two years. Two years of change, loss, and new beginnings.

To me, this album seems almost like the end of one film and the start of the next. It has a strange way of reading like a diary, or a series of postcards telling tales of what was going on in one’s life when each was sent… to those who are and aren’t a part of ones life anymore. And might not even care to read them.

My main influences while writing and recording this album were “Currents” by Tame Impala and “The Party” by Andy Shauf. Both felt so relatable to me. They seemed to have come from a deeper space from within each artist. I guess they inspired me to look deeper to find inspiration and to really use each song as a way to scream out whatever it was I was feeling at the time. It’s an album that I believe could be relatable to anyone who’s ever felt like they just could not figure out where they were going. “What path am I on?” - “Is this really what I want my life to be?”

In hindsight, maybe Buddy Love had gone a little coconuts. But maybe it wasn’t all in vein.

Track Name: Walk Right Back
Hear her calling in the dead of night
Early mornin’ I know I’m not alright

No hope for us remains
I don’t know, I can’t explain
It seems my love will always fade…

Going over what I ought to say
Come tomorrow I know there’ll be no pain

Think I’ve got it all figured out
Thinking things will be different now
Make a decision and I

Walk right back again
Walk right back again
Mind made up but then
Walk right back again

But when I see her smile
The words just slip away
and it ain't easy when
Your mind says go
your heart just wants to stay

Feeling broken as the mornin’ breaks
Now’s the time I’ve got to get away

Turn to go before she wakes
See her smile from a picture frame
Memories come flooding
I want to change I want to run
I lose my nerve and…

Walk right back again
Walk right back again
Mind made up but then
Walk right back again
Track Name: Night and Day
Well you should know by now
Cause I've said it all before
If you don't treat me right
I'll be walking out the door

and you should know for sure
That I wont be played a fool
Why do I kid myself oh
What am I gonna do

Don't you wanna hold me
Baby, through the night
Won't you come on, baby
and make it feel so nice

Show me night and day
Take me all the way
I say make up your mind or turn me away
Cause I'm on my way today

Do you have something to say
Or am I in this alone
If you don't tell me now then
How will I ever know

and you should know by now
That I can't say it no more
If you don't treat me right
I'll be walking out the door

Don't you wanna hold me
In your arms tonight
Won't you come on, baby
and make it feel so right

Show me night and day
Take me all the way
I say make up your mind or turn me away
Cause I'm on my way today
Track Name: Catch Her Quick
People say "if you're lost you're in the way"
But still the wait for their only lucky break
You call me out - just like all the other times
To lay or lie or to wait until I die

It might sound crazy but I can't forget you girl
Wish I could shake you but it's true...

...I still love you
and I don't know what to do
I had the perfect chance too

This indecisiveness will always bog me down
and I know that something wicked this way comes

I'd say I'm sorry but I know it wouldn't do
Just know I'm telling you the truth

...I still love you
and I know just what to do
I know I better catch her quick.
Better catch her quick.
Track Name: Surprise
Once long ago
Love of new
Love of old

You come around
Play my heart
When you say...

Let me take you
Let me take you
Let me take you by surprise

We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when

I stay away
Once again
Till you say...

Let me take you
Let me take you
Let me take you by surprise

We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when

I see the way
That you smile
When you say...

Let me take you
Let me take you
Let me take you by...

Let me take you
Let me take you
Let me take you by... surprise

("Poor Sabrina, what's the matter with him anyway?"
"He's getting married again, that's what's the matter with him!")
Track Name: Rations
("and the dance bands played on....")

Time to open the inn
Said Emily to Finn
Let us go and let us begin
To learn to accept the changes

Cause change is in the air
Emily so let down your hair and
Really feel it now

Look at my baby blue
and all of the things you do
You love me when all the day is through
You just seem to know what we ought to do
But I got this feeling, this crazy urge

Cause change is all the rage
Emily so get out of your cage and
Really feel it now

Maybe its from all the cheers,
From our window we hear
Because the bombs are no longer
Falling from the air

Time to open the inn, Finn...

Cause change is all around
Emily so let your hair down
And really feel it now

Maybe its from all the cheers
From our window we hear
Because the bombs are no longer
Falling from the air

Time to open the inn, Finn...
Track Name: She Slipped Away
In and of his time, nothing remains.
Walking through his life like a hurricane.
Throw her away, in a day you are full of regret.
Give you what she can, you go quickly tonight.

Red line up the hall, bathed in the dawn.
Daughter of the earth, look at her fly.
Into thin air, in and out of her mind you fall.
Look up, take her hand, may you lose her for sure.

Isn’t it sad?
Who could be glad?
All that we had.

Slipping away.
She slipped away.
Her heart kept at bay
and his thoughts locked away.
Keeping him up at night.

She’s slipped away and now what will you do?
She’s slipped away, oh boy, what can you do?

Look you in the eye, like the lovers of old.
Waited much too long, now she's already gone.
Down by the ocean, and old broken bridge you go.
In due time you find, that it’s only begun.

Who could be glad?
Isn’t it sad?

Slipping away.
She slipped away.
Her love kept at bay
and his thoughts so far away.
Keeping him up at night.

She slipped away and now what will you do?
She slipped away, my dear boy, what can be done for you?

Don’t let that girl get away from you.
Don't you know she was meant for you?
Track Name: The Pipes
Ohh - didn't I hear you say that you just have to get away?
Well lets go, don't delay, I'm so hopeful

Oooh - when will we find the time for a kiwi date at the Pipes?
In the night, skin so fare, someone follows...

Look out now cause you're feeling good
Not like you to do exactly what you should
In the end it's all the same
No one is to blame

Now I've forgotten the look in her eyes
Flower in hair - myself in her thighs
Where are we going where have we been?
Together forever? Never ever we've been

Look out now cause you're feeling good
Not like you to do exactly what you should
In the end it's all the same
No one is to blame

Oooh - tell all your friends goodbye
Cause you're not worth the sacrifice
Not quite here not quite there
Do you follow?

Look out now cause you're feeling good
Not like you to do exactly what you should
In the end it's all the same
No one is to blame
Track Name: Stormy
On every wall of every hall, a portraits hung.
Memories of what was said and what is done.
and I’m not sorry, no I’m not the guilty one.
Don’t you try to tell me that I am just making it up.

Girl, you know it's so unfair.
I’m so sick of waiting here, in this house of hell,
Stormy, when you are there.

I’m still haunted by the stench of rotten affairs.
and I can hear the whispers everywhere.
I know the fear I have ain’t going away.
Don’t you see that I am doing the best I can…

Girl, you know it's so unfair.
I’m so sick of living here, in this house of hell,
Stormy, when you are there.

On every wall of every hall, a portraits hung.
Memories of what was said and what you’ve done.
and I’m not sorry, no I’m not the guilty one.
Don’t you try to tell me that I am just making it up.

Girl, you know it's so unfair.
I’m so sick of waiting here, in this house of hell,
Stormy, when you are there.
Track Name: I Caught Your Eye
I saw your face,
Your eyes as they looked into mine
My thoughts so displaced

and our love began to grow,
Like nothing I’d ever known.
I ran my hands through your long dark hair
as you slept in my arms so sweetly unaware.

I caught your eye,
and through the smoke filled room
I think you caught mine.

and wherever we may go,
Our love will still be known.
In each others minds, in hymns and in rhymes,
When loves in the air and spring is so near,
all the lovers come in tow.

Baby, you and I will look back on memories
Only we would know,
The time and the place
that I first saw your face
And the way I feel, you know.
That I love you so.
It shall be so,
I love you so.

So wherever we may go,
Our love will still be known.
In each others minds, in hymns and in rhymes,
When loves in the air and spring is so near,
all the lovers come in tow.

Baby, you and I will look back on memories
Only we would know,
The time and the place
that I first saw your face
And the way I feel, you know.
That I love you so.
It shall be so,
I love you so.
Track Name: Something / Unusual?
I know you may be wondering
“Why’d he trade her in for those earthly things
Ain’t it something unusual?”

Wherever you may find me
I will still be here and my arms are open wide
Would it be so unusual?

Yooou and I are we strangers in your mind?
Why should I have to be the one to cry?
Gimme a sign that you want to still be mine
Don’t leave it up to me to have to decide

and now I find me wondering
How did I end up here with strangers all around?
Aren’t they somewhat unusual?

Ask me whats wrong oh I hope it wont take long
To forget all the times that you have done me wrong
I’ve got to go got to leave you all behind
And face this moment in my life

Well it may be right it may be wrong
Gotta take a chance before its gone
Before my life is over and I fall into despair.

Ooohooh, won’t you please stop haunting me?
Round every corner and all that I can see
Pink, purple, blue and you know just what to do
Fuck what they say all those ones that don’t know you

Windmills on bicycles and jab robins again
You looking nervous, don’t deserve its all the same
Yellow, red and blue, the only colors that you knew
Little Miss Mystery your star sign sure suits you
